Time-Saving Conversion
Sound Grinder was built to become the best audio convertor for those jobs that steal the most time from the creative process. To accomplish this, we have incorporated many features including, folder retention, custom naming options, Pull Up/Down sample rates, peak and RMS normalizations, and an intuitive user interface built around a one-window design. Now with 64-bit support, take full advantage of your machines processing power.

Take Presets Further
Sound Grinder includes Droplets providing instant conversion within the macOS Finder using your custom presets. Set up your conversion settings, choose "Create Droplet..." from the Preset Action menu and save the Droplet to any location. Now when you drag any file(s)/folder(s) to the saved droplet icon, Sound Grinder will process those files instantly using your specified settings!

Tackle Your Metadata
Sound Grinder provides support for several types of metadata, including reading and writing the full suite of ID3 tags in AIFF, WAVE and MP3 files. Metadata can now be displayed not only in the "Asset Info" pane, but also in the main "Asset List". Every metadata item can be edited for single or multiple assets by simply OPTION+clicking the edit field. Specific metadata items can be pre-filled for export in the new Metadata Tab in the conversion settings.
